Discipline Inspection Commission announced it has investigated and penalized three officials, who were involved in a sex scandal in Fuzhou, Southeast China's Fujian Province.

The case originated from Fuzhou Public Security Bureau's investigation into a blackmail case in October, 2014. One tea shop owner in Fuzhou used a young "tea girl" to seduce local officials, filmed their misconduct by a hidden camera, and extorted 200,000 yuan (around 32,000 US dollars) from each of the officials for the videos. One official refused to pay the ransom, claiming that he was single after divorce and was justifiably in a relationship with the "tea girl", and reported to the police for extortion.

The whole investigation involved a total of 22 local officials. So far 6 of them have been investigated and punished. Fuzhou police have detained the “tea girl” and her conspirators in October, 2014.
